"We are always on alert. Goa is an international tourist destination so we cannot take chance. Whether something happens in the neighbouring state or not, Goa has to be on alert," Kamat told reporters here.
Few hours after Mumbai blasts, Goa police had claimed that the state was on red alert. Police had intensified its presence at crowded places like bus stands, railway stations and markets. All the vehicles entering and leaving the state were also thoroughly checked.
